Without much in the way of a fanfare, the new Eastern Bay Link Road – opened earlier this week – making it easier for drivers from Penarth to get to and from the other side of Cardiff .
Initial reaction from the few drivers who know the new road exists – and is open – is reported to be good. The new 1.2 kilometer road cuts out the tortuous and congested route and should improve traffic flow
The new road begins at the “Queens Gate Roundabout ” (the other side of the tunnels from Penarth) and connects to the Ocean Way roundabout in Tremorfa – easing access to the East Moors area, Cardiff Bay and the Cardiff Central Enterprise Zone. It also provides a more direct route between the A4232 Butetown tunnel and Rover Way
